We have experience representing injured people and their families in thousands of cases.
Car accidents are one of the leading causes of personal injury in Missouri. According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, there were about 157,038 car accidents in 2019 alone. While some of these accidents resulted in property damage, a significant number resulted in serious injuries or even death. In fact, more than 645 people were killed in car accidents in Missouri the same year.
If you have been involved in a car accident, it is important to seek medical attention right away, even if you don’t think you’ve been injured. Some injuries, such as whiplash, may not be immediately apparent. And if you wait too long to seek medical treatment, insurance companies may be less likely to cover your medical expenses. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you navigate the complex legal process and ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, we can help you get the compensation you deserve. Truck accidents are often caused by driver error, mechanical failure or poor road conditions.
Whatever the cause of your accident, we will fight to get you the full and fair compensation you are entitled to. We will investigate the accident and gather evidence to build a strong case on your behalf.
At the Montee Law Firm, our motorcycle accident attorneys understand the devastation that a motorcycle accident can cause. We have represented many clients who were seriously injured in motorcycle accidents, and we know the importance of obtaining fair compensation for our clients. If you or someone you love has been involved in a motorcycle accident, we can help. We will work tirelessly to investigate the accident and build a strong case on your behalf. With our experience and resources, we will fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve.
The loss of a loved one is always difficult, but it can be especially hard to cope with when the death is caused by someone else's negligence. If you have lost a family member due to someone else's carelessness, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
Wrongful death lawsuits are designed to hold the responsible party accountable and to help the surviving family members recover damages. These damages can include burial and funeral expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
DRUNK DRIVING INJURY ACCIDENTS
Drunk driving injury is one of the leading causes of car accidents in the United States. Every year, thousands of people are injured or killed in drunk driving accidents and the financial costs are estimated to be in the billions of dollars. Drunk driving accidents can result in a variety of personal injuries, including head injuries, spinal cord damage and broken bones.
In addition, a drunk driving conviction provides strong evidence that can be used in your case. If you have been injured by a drunk driver, it is important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you navigate the complex legal process and protect your rights.
Construction work injury accident cases often fall into one of these five areas: falls from heights, electrocutions, crane accidents, scaffold collapses and being hit by debris or equipment. Although construction workers are trained in how to work safely, construction sites are inherently dangerous places. There are many potential hazards, and even the most safety-conscious worker can be injured in an accident.
If you have been injured in a construction accident, you may be able to recover compensatory damages for your injuries. These damages include medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. An experienced personal injury attorney with the Montee Law Firm can help you to understand your rights and options after a construction accident.
Everyday items we use without a second thought can be quite dangerous if they are not made properly. Thousands of people are injured by products that are improperly designed, manufactured or labeled. For example, a simple defect in the design of a child’s toy can lead to serious injuries if the toy is swallowed. Similarly, a flaw in manufacturing a car part can cause a serious accident.
Injured consumers have the right to seek compensation from the companies responsible for making and selling these defective products. An experienced personal injury attorney at the Montee Law Firm can help victims navigate the legal process and ensure they receive the full amount of damages they are entitled to.
Medical malpractice is a type of personal injury that occurs when a health care professional provides substandard care to a patient, resulting in injury or death. In order to win a medical malpractice case, the plaintiff must prove that the health care professional owed a duty of care to the patient, that this duty was breached and that the breach resulted in the plaintiff's injuries.
Medical malpractice examples include surgery, misdiagnosis, birth injuries and medication errors. If you believe that you or a loved one has been the victim of medical malpractice, call a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
Every year, millions of people in the United States are injured in accidents at work. These accidents can range from minor cuts and bruises to life-threatening injuries, which can devastate the victim and their family. You may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits if you have been injured at work. These benefits can help cover your medical expenses and lost wages and provide you with valuable protection if your injury prevents you from returning to work. However, obtaining workers' compensation benefits can be a complex and daunting task. Fortunately, some personal injury attorneys specialize in workers' compensation cases and can help you navigate the process. Working with a workers’ compensation lawyer at the Montee Law Firm gives you the best possible chance of recovering the benefits you need and deserve.
SLIP & FALL ACCIDENTS
In Missouri, the law requires property owners to take reasonable care to maintain their premises in a safe condition. This duty of care applies to all types of property, including homes, businesses and public parks. When a property owner fails to live up to this responsibility and someone is injured as a result, the owner can be held liable under the theory of premises liability.
An injured party must prove that the owner of the property knew or should have known about the dangerous condition and failed to fix it. If you have been injured on another person's property, filing a premises liability claim may be possible. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you investigate your claim and hold the responsible party accountable.

Mr. Montee started the Montee Law Firm in 1996 with the goal of helping accident victims and their families. Since then, the Montee Law Firm has recovered over $300 million in verdicts and settlements for its clients. James Montee has personally handled dozens of high-profile cases that resulted in verdicts or settlements of over a million dollars, and takes pride in maximizing the recovery for all clients of the Montee Law Firm. He currently represents victims of automobile accidents, trucking accidents, motorcycle accidents, construction accidents, product liability, slip and fall, and medical malpractice.
“The Montee Law Firm was a huge help in settling my case. After my accident, I was confused and intimidated by the claims adjusters. I spent months trying to settle on my own and felt increasingly frustrated and anxious. Once I reached out for help, the Montee Law Firm sprang to action and I never had to speak to the adjusters or attempt to negotiate on my own behalf again. The Firm took care of everything, provided a huge relief during a stressful time, and they negotiated a fair settlement on my behalf.”
